    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This class is difficult just by the nature of the material, but McCarthy breaks it down very organized and clear. He provides sample of what he expects, sample of tests so you know the format. I found that some questions on the samples, were similar to the actual test. The scenario might be different, or the answer my be negative in one, then reversed to be positive in the test, but once if you study, read, and show up to class, you will be fine.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights were that the professor really does want you to pass so he provides a lot of extra points. also does test reviews & posts them online for those who missed it. Also, midterm is broken down in to two to make it more palatable (not cumulative even though he says it is). Is is cumulative in the sense that you need the basic foundation, not the theory itself. if you do bad on the 1st midterm, but better in the 2nd he applied a percentage of the difference to the last midterm which brings up your grade. Same with the final (only one final - also not cumulative in the theory part even thought he says it is). This class is not cake, but if you do your part it is palatable.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not underestimate the class. While it is easier than millers it is not easy due to the nature of the material. suggest you do good at the beginning so if you bomb the final (like i did) you can still do good in the class (B+ for me). Take advantage of all extra point, you might need them.

    This class was tough.

    Course Overview:

    She requires more than the coarse requires. Is very difficult, does not like questions during lecture (rolls eyes when you ask), Very difficult as she seems to be there to let students know she was once an IBM executive (no relevance to the class), Possibly OCD. If she sees that you carry your papers not in a binder, or other organized method, it affects your class participation. . My opinion. Best advice I can give is drop her class and take McCarthy. Not easy, but easier than her because he really does want the best for his students. Will make time and breaks down material to what you need, not like miller that adds additional requirements because she feels you should know it even though the coarse does not requrie it. ,

    Course highlights:

    I actually learned this in McCarthy's class. Policy analysts is simply taking a full picture of a situation that needs political attention. What something cost, vs the benefit it provides will tell yo how efficient something is and if you should accept the policy, but not before you look at the equity. So a policy that increases the taxes of the rich by a dollar and 50 cents, but gets 1 dollar in the hands of the poor might be worth it on an equity point So evaluate the options. Is the equity provided worth the loss of 50 cents per dollar to the poor. Most time yes. in situations like public transit which is subsidized to make it affordable to the poor. Without subsidies, it might cost $10 to ride 1 bus.

    Hours per week:

    12+ hours

    Advice for students:

    Drop it and take McCarthy. Same material but while still hard, easier than Millers
